Commercial equipment engineering company North West Catering Engineers (NWCE) is celebrating growth by moving to new premises.
After 4 years of trading, the servicing specialist had outgrown its previous rented commercial property in Bury, in Greater Manchester and needed a new, well-suited premises, in the region, which would support its full range of services.
Last month, NWCE moved to premises located at Folds Road in Bolton, with a main road frontage and convenient links to the motorway and transport network.
The 10,000ft2 control centre supports nationwide services, centralised parts storage and distribution to support the engineers’ van stocks.
The premises also features on-site fabrication facilities, a new and used equipment warehouse, a spacious workshop area, showroom and fully operational commercial test kitchen. Externally, the large car parking and yard area is required for the growing fleet of service and installation vehicles.
The move has made it possible for NWCE to increase its national service control centre team, to include call handlers, engineer controllers and service supervisory staff, all of whom are supported by the experienced spare parts department.
The NWCE sales team, led by Justin Bailey, has also just recruited new support staff to further boost customer service.
The now Bolton-based company specialises in the service and maintenance of equipment within all commercial catering environments.
With MD Ben Odling and his team, NWCE is able to offer services in maintenance, repairs, breakdown and fabrication to all food outlets from small cafes and pubs to large chain restaurants and hotels.
Recently agreed by NWCE directors, is a 3-year strategy to give existing and new customers ongoing, improved and new customer support services with more details to be released in the new year.
Odling said: “Our new office in Bolton is the ideal base to network and develop relationships with existing and new customers and provides plenty of space to accommodate our growing team.
“This past year has seen huge growth for NWCE and the new premises is one of the physical examples of this.”
